The movie stars Chris Pratt as Emmet, an average Lego guy with a zest for life who is mistaken for the amazing Master Builder by the bearded sage Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman) and is given a mission to save the Lego world from being destroyed by Lord Business, the evil business man voiced by Will Ferrell.

Emmet's bravery paired with a nervous desire to take on the evil of the Lego world is a hilarious mixture that brings the child out in all viewers.
